This book considers the beginnings of anthropology as a cultural tradition, and examines how it was developed and transmitted.
It begins in the twelfth century, when commercial capitalism and extensive acculturation spread a secular world view among intellectuals. It ends with the eighteenth century, because most anthropologists are familiar with the subsequent history of their science.
Originally published in 1963.
